Energy from Cooking
16 Jun '17 — An evening boost
I was very tired today. Didn't sleep well. Somehow, cooking gave me a boost. I wanted to make a lasagna in preparation for the weekend and I'd made plans earlier this week to make it on Friday. At the end of the day my energy was low, but I was mentally prepared. Once I started washing and chopping, I found myself feeling awake.
It's fun to feel wet slimy food, to stir and listen to things sizzle and boil. Sorting out my thoughts this morning, I was able to take my own advice: enjoy activities off the computer. Use your hands for something other than typing.
